X PAGE FOUR THE ALBANY DEMOCRAT-HERALD, ALBANY, OREGON FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 1936 IT'S ALL VERY INTELLECTUAL One tomorrow for yes, there is news! She dared not leave the house jing them, for fear of missing his call. IheiGracie. Oh, said winningly, and Pete could be extremely winning.

If it were removed, then who would care if, for instance, the Olympians should borrow Mt. Hood or Crater" LaKo bnee in a while, or if Oregon should now and then usurp Puget Sound? United in a booster program, the two states would also be in a bettor position to defend Pete wanted an invitation, and he didn't know how to ask for it. Editors and PublUhcra ' W t,, Jackson and R.

It was a date, and thinking of NO MOKE SNOW WORRIES it Pete pushed his hat a little more to the side as he walked housekeeper was too old to be relied upon; that was the excuse she gave- herself . Deep in her heart, she knew her real reason was that if Dix called and said he couldn't come on Sunday, she hoped she could make him suggest another time. On Saturday Wilda Jennings came to see her. Wilda had been Linda's right hand in those days that seemed so long ago. "Honsy," Wilda assured her, "None of us are having a good time, thinking about you having to stay here and all this terrible trouble. We don't talk about anything else, and the parties don't seem to be any fun at all without you. Don't ypu miss them?" "No, I don't, but it's sweet of you to think about me. Now tell me all the news," Linda answered, wondering how she could ever have been" like the other girls with nothing but parties to think about. "There really isn't any news. Tommy is coming down from Cambridge next week-end, . thank goodness. And Jane Wyatt's giving a cocktail party. She's always giv- with Dix Carter and he s taking her to Gleen club'concert tbrftght." After that,. Linda coudn'f ire-member anything else Wilda had told her. Dix was taking Jane' Wy-att to the Glee club concert! i She couldn't speak quite clearly for the flood of relief that poured into her heart when Dix called her a few minutes after Wilda left. , , ...

She wanted to go back, step by step, over all that had been said between them before he had surprised her by his half-serious proposal, but she fell asleep, thinking about Dix and wondering how much time would elapse before she heard from him. WHY NOT JOIN FORCES The next day she wrote to Dix Opening of the Santlam pass road to provide an outlet for Mc-Kenzic highway traffic that will be snow-bound for some time to come by drifts on the MeKenzie lava beds will be a triumph for the Santiam route. It will revivify strongly the oft-repeated argu-i ment .that the Santlam route should have been the first completed across the Cascades. It has long been known that the Santiam pass of all the Cascade summit gateways is the freest from snow. During some winters it has been established that, were the road completed ,it would remain open without help of human hand. At worst the -snowfall on the Santiam route Is never such that more than slight effort would be required to keep traffic going. The South Santiam road is for the most part located along sunny or sheltered mountain slopes where it rises above the winter on her new, black-bordered sta tionery. It was a little note thank ing him for his expression of sympathy, and adding that, since she could not go out, she would like to have him for tea on Sunday. Linda torgot her date wtih Peter Oar- We are interested ! in your business progress diner. She dropped the note in the box and then went home to plan for Sunday. She must not be too sombre; she would wear a smart little black velvet frock and she would fill the house with flowers. She knew that her mourning snow line. It traverses no cuts or would have a deep influence on Dix, and the enchantment of their companionship had been paced by gaiety. gorges which will fill with drifts. On one side or other all the way the South Santiam highway is There were four more days until Sunday. Every time the telephone rang, Linda's heart jumped to her throat as she took the re open, which will enable snowplows Your interests are our interests since nearly eVery business suction you make involves one or more banking, service.

She sorted always to dump their loads. When the South Santiam highway is finished no one will need to Inquire whether or not the pass is open, summer or winter. i; Up in Washington a' group of public-spirited citizens has launch- . ed an organization knovvn as the Olympians, whose purpose is to attract tourists und industries to that stute by means of nntion-wido publicity. Washington and Oregon have much in common. Their respective .topographies arc similar, with i.each state sharing the Cascade mountains, high plateaus to the east and well-watered vnlley and thills to the west; similar coast lines and general scenery. They share ,ithe advantages of the Columbia river its fishing industry, Bon- r.neville dam and its transportation facilities. i The two stales are now more closely wedded by interstate high-ways and railroads. In fact, no other two states in the union have more mutual Interests than do Oregon and Washington, There is ; really no cause for rivalry between the two, for the progress of one Is bound to reflect to the other. It would be a fine thing, then, if Oregon and Washington boosters Bhould pool their resources and Join "efforts toward advertising the Pacific Northwest Instead of competing each state with the other In the eastern tourist market. If Oregon and Washington Would pay less attention to such minor rivalries as have been promoted In the past by ovor-enthusl-bctls state parlots, the energies of each could be turned to the advantage of the whole territory, and less effort would be wasted.

Pete had heard a good many stories from girls who had lost and were unable to find secretarial jobs, but he hadn't the heart to discourage her when he had nothing else to offer.

"But dramatic expression, plot development those ore the things 1 love. 1 haven't had any experience except with school clubs and things." i "And you wrote a play' for the bazaar," he reminded her. "Oh, that!" She dismissed 'hat. She didn't want to think of it. It was too closely associated wtih the dreadful week before. "Did you ever do anything else like that'.1" Pete asked her. rrspuiiuutKiy more so. : Any tourist who has gone to the trouble of crossing the continent should want to see both Oregon and Washington before returning homo. Having seen both states, he would bo influenced the more to remain, perhaps, as a permanent resident of one or the other. Certainly if the lure of Oregon alone la not enough, the added beauties i of Washington must Induce him to linger, or vice versa. He should be overwhemled. as It were, by the combined charms of the Pacific northwest. So Oregon and Washington should get together on a mutual program for the entire territory. There never was much excuse for win to marry a girl who was accustomed to luxuries he couldn't givev her. Then lie remembered that" Linda was no longer im heiress to anything except trouble. Nevertheless, . his overwhelming feeling was surprise that lie had spoken so impetuously. Whatever Linda's reactions were she did not betray them. She knew why he had asked her to marry him, and she knew, too, how to reply. "That was exactly tho right thing to say to a lady in distress," she told him, but 1 am not to be T TNI.

She crossed the room, unlocked the desk, -and drew u sheaf of papers from it. Then she shyly resumed her seat beside him. Pete had never seen a girl who w as shy, and it suddenly occurred to him thai he had never enjoyed himself before as much as this evening. "Yes, I have," she answered his question finally.
